    in Politics Conservative

    Howdy, loyal citizens!  Welcome to the latest edition of Afronerd Radio's Mid Week in Review broadcast airing this Wednesday at 7:30pm (EST).  Join Dburt and Capt. Kirk as they wax politic and prophetic on the following topics: a brief pre-Grindhouse discussion regarding our visit to this past weekend's Black Comic Book Festival located at the legendary Schomburg Black History Museum; Dburt gives his last diatribe on the folly of intraracial colorism at the advent of the release of the Light Girls doc on the OWN network; and there's probably a similar rant as it pertains to Black investment in the Academy Awards; Tesla's Elon Musk is hoping to revolutionize public transportation with his Hyperloop transit system; analyzing actor Anthony Mackie's recent comments about race, Selma and racial profiling (now Anthony you know you can't have a non-tribal/individualistic opinion!); and speaking of Selma, why has Dburt delayed watching the film (and thankfully, Cap has seen it) and lastly, was MSNBC's Ronan Farrow awkwardly condescending toward a young Black attendee to POTUS' latest State of the Union address?  You decide.  Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.

    Politics Done Right on KPFT - Journalist Rula Jebreal discusses media bias

    in Politics Progressive

    This week’s show  
    July 28th, 2014


    Journalist Rula Jebreal discusses media bias in Palestinian-Israeli Conflict


    Rula Jebreal will be the featured guest on Politics Done Right. Rula Jebreal is a journalist, a commentator, and author of Miral, a novel translated into 15 languages, that sold millions of copiesworldwide and a film that was the first ever premiered in the UN General Assembly Hall. She also authored the International Fince Europa Award winning book The Bride of Aswan that was translated into 5 languages. Her third book, Rejected is a non-fiction about immigration in Europe. She wrote and produced the film Permesso di Soggiorno about the death penalty in China, the United States, and Iran during the UN debate on the death penalty in 2008.


    Jebreal is the brave journalist that had the spine to go into a mainstream media studio, an MSNBC studio and speak the truth at her own peril. While concurrently writing an article on the refugee crisis on the Texas border and listening to Ronan Farrow Daily on MSNBC, I listened somewhat inattentively as Rula Jebreal gave a spirited narrative on the biased coverage given to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. I had not heard such a brave defense and pushback on MSNBC or on any other network. I immediately stopped what I was doing, recorded the interview, and edited it for Internet consumption. I knew the traditional mainstream media would attempt to make it a one day story. The blogosphere would not.
